If the remote could only talk and whine, mine could have wrestled me to stop last night. There were three shows that I was watching. All of them are in their season finale.arghhh.
The Dancing with the Stars started at 8 ET. Yes, Nicole won. Yehhey. Then there is the NCIS-original and the NCIS-LA which some people should watch so they will know that there is indeed a mobile phone jammer or signal blocker and even the more sophisticated computer security system can be hacked by sixteen year olds and or the geeks attending the hackers convention somewhere in Vegas.
Naah, I did not watch the American Idol. I was turned off by the prediction of Simon Cowell as to who is going to bring home the title.

She let the dried umbilical cord to dry and fall after a few weeks. She said that it conserved some "nutrients" coming from the mother to pass thru the cord. She was not schooled and hardly finished her grade school.
Then comes this article, years after she died and decades after my midwife great grandmother died and all the midwives in the family. I realized that the family is in the healthcare even when we were not born yet.

But now we know that stemThey could have asked the Filipino midwives who preserved the cords for future use for medicinal purposes.They could have listened to these old folks who use "bigkis" not only to prevent "kabag" of babies(this is often the source of problem of crying babies, the whole night).
